We are deeply committed to our next generation of neighbors and their parents. We demonstrate this commitment by creating a safe, nurturing and educational environment for school-age children, ages five through 12. Our Afterschool and Summer Camp Programs offer them inspiration and the opportunity to learn, play and make friends.
Thanks to our many partners, neighbors and friends in the Lincoln Square community, we are able to offer LSNC children the benefits of living at one of New York City’s greatest academic and artistic crossroads. From Fordham Law School to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, The New York Historical Society, The Walt Disney Company, The Art Student’s League and the American Bible Society, LSNC partners are devoted to enriching our children’s lives by sharing their knowledge, their time and support.

Our children create puppets, costumes and acting roles with the Boston Puppetry Cooperative and participate in the exciting annual Lincoln Center Outdoor Festival's Play day in a giant puppet pageant on the Josie Robertson Plaza in front of an audience of hundreds.
In keeping with our mission, Children YES! (Youth Empowered To Succeed) after school and summer camp programs strive to engage children to develop, support and strengthen their educational, social, cultural and recreational skills and competencies in an effort to prepare them for future challenges and become better decision makers.
Key to the educational success of our children is support from their parents. We work to provide all of our parents, some who may lack college education and others who may manage single parent households, with the information they need to confidently engage their children in the learning process.
We also collaborate with schools to address the specific needs of our children. This is particularly helpful in supporting children who have been identified as at risk of failure, in need of clinical testing for a learning disability, or in need of more structure or focused parental support.
